Silverstone Raven RV03: User review, lessons learned, and build log - Page 37

Here's hoping i get my Enermax PSU to fit without too much trouble seeing as someones already made fit with a 200mm PSU while mine is 190mm smile.gif
post #362 of 425
Who made a 200mm PSU fit? As I understand it the PSU 180mm limitation is pretty hard, much more and you'll have trouble getting the cables to fit.

There was a guy who stripped off the sleeving on a non-modular PSU and was able to jam his cover on.

He took pics, but it wasn't pretty.

Can't remember if it was thus thread or the one on [H].

Oh I see. Hows you're build treating you? I'm stilling being lazy and not finishing the last 10% of my sound deadening, I did all the big parts but I keep putting off the last little bit of detail work. I also haven't got to try speedfan out yet either, I've got a list of stuff that I need to do to my machine. frown.gif

I ordered this [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001NPEBEW"]clear CMOS switch[/ame] cause it's supposed to just pop into our case (pg 43 of the manual) but it looks like I need to pop a metal plate out or drill or something, gonna have to contact SS about what I'm supposed to do. Once I get it in though I think it will be nice for $7, my board doesn't have an on-board CMOS button so I'd have to move a jumper.

I am happy with it, but like you there comes a time when I just want to use the system and stop fiddling with it.

I have the replacement front I/O panel, but haven't gotten around to installing it.

I do like how quiet the system is when running the intake fans at absolute minimum: 500 RPMs of so.

So new guy here.

I've been reading about mounting the H100 in it, and while I see it as entirely possible... wouldn't the placement of the rad completely defeat the purpose of watercooling?

Now I finally built my raven, as it should have been from the beginning

Just a question to rv03 owners,

Is it really worth it? I already have the money to buy a haf 912 advanced or a 400r(don't like the looks). but i've been looking at this one, is it really worth saving up?

please cite the issues with this case please biggrin.gif

Can't fit a 240 rad in the front drive bays. Some GPU/CPU heatsinks may not work to their maximum potential due to the case's 90 degree nature.

Those are the ONLY minor/nit-picky faults I can find with it.
